I agree with Doru at all, I find much more pleasing the sound of British
English opposed to American. It could be because we are both Europeans
and more used to meet British people than American.
I love Don McAllister voice too from http://www.screencastonline.com/ I
don't care about Mac OS but I follow all of his free casts! :-)
Keep on with your accent Al!!
And we want more "easter eggs" like Tigger... hehehe
